As I mentioned a few weeks ago, I have a lot of currants. Possibly too many. I’ve been at a loss for what to do with them, but I decided to get adventurous and figure out how to best bake them while fresh (I’ve got recipes for dried ones, like my Rosewater Currant Cakes but

It’s summertime again, and that means my friend’s mom has currant bushes that are overflowing with fruit. This year, she taught me how to juice them using a pressure cooker, but then I was stuck with far more currant juice than I knew what to do with. I still had jelly from last year, as

My friend Gauri and I were talking the other day and, as usual, we got on the subject of food. We haven’t been able to see one another in about a year, so we took advantage of technology and had ourselves a little long-distance lunch date via video chat. I happened to have the ingredients

This is one of my favorite simple recipes. My mom used to make this granola for me when I was in high school (and occasionally when I was in college). It’s delicious, quick, and incredibly easy to make. You can also do a lot to personalize it by adding in seeds, nuts, fruits, or anything

Crock pot meals are some of my favorites because I can throw stuff in the pot in the morning, turn it on, and have dinner ready in the evening whenever I need it. Meals like that are especially nice when either hubby has long meetings that take him until after or I have to leave

I had a giant pork loin hanging out in my freezer and I knew it had been there for a while but I wasn’t sure just how long “a while” had been. While looking for recipe ideas for braising, roasting, marinating, and countless other things I wasn’t super interested in, I remembered that pulled pork

Happy Halloween, my spooky friends! Your treat for tuning in is a delicious recipe for a sweet cordial, but the trick is that you have to wait for it to be ready! Halloween is my favorite holiday, and while I could spend the entire post telling you all about superstitions and pagan lore and fun

This summer, I had a craving for something summery, but in a crockpot. I realize that it’s now fall, but when I wrote this, it was late June. I did some serious backlogging for the wedding… So, I’m sorry for holding onto this for so long before I could release it, but on the other hand,
